"dog company" and the second ranger battalion was placed in the fort as a reserve unit. it was there that they would ask the special operations mission that never took place but all men said something to me, our longest day was not d-day. it was december 7, 1944. let me take you now to was the second ranger battalion had as one of their greatest battles. in many ways it is an untold story. a place called bernstein. practically an entire army regiment, tank regiment was tasked with seizing burkestein, it was the farthest penetration into germany. the tank regiments was practically destroyed trying to take burkstein. behind burkstein was hill 400. the only people that were left in reserve was the second r

in the modern age, this is probably the best defense for liberty. doesn't have to be nationstate exactly. theoretically cut alone in a for flanders could probably exist as a nation, as long as they separated peacefully. they established the democratic republic of flanders to some people are discussing now. this could have been. it's not even theoretical at this point. i have a few call it a nationstate. but it doesn't necessarily mean ethnic nation. in the modern world, this is probably the best institutions, unless you can, but better. i don't think it would be world government, but it would be a form of governance in which they were the structures. an international criminal core, which appeared in national law. in liberty and can send can't be seen as on the american founders, what do they see as most precious going back to the declaration of independence and the constitution, our rights come from god. the rates are protected by a form of government. it could be a smaller form of government, but it would be some form of estate. i think that answered your question. i don't see anything
